I think Umar saheb you are right. Toxicity is usually an issue for kids in plants which give berries which are toxic and fear is kids will eat them. Other plants like brugmansia and datura though toxic are more problematic in the west where almost every person has a dog which can eat and get sick. Here I don't think it is that big an issue if they are planted with careful sight selection.

Adnan, one of my plant which i grew from seed may be a double, it formed buds last year but dropped all of them when I opened the immature bud there were 2-3 whorls of petals.. lets see if it blooms this season..

UPDATE: 4 out of 6 cuttings have sprouted, I will wait for 10 days further so that their roots become more developed, before sending..
